Michy Batshuayi’s loan to Valencia this season was supposed to be the making of him after a breakout 6 months at Borussia Dortmund.
Instead it’s turning into a bit of a disaster, with the Spanish team struggling to perform as well as they did last season, and Batman barely even featuring for them at the moment.
There are various whispers doing the rounds today, with Estadio Deportivo (who are based in Seville, whom Batshuayi turned down to join Los Che) reporting gleefully that he could be off before long, with a January return to Chelsea being mooted.
If he continues to not be picked, that might be best for all parties. With Kevin Gameiro and Rodrigo Moreno currently ahead of him in the pecking order, his minutes look set to continue drying up.
Maybe Dortmund are looking for January reinforcements this year too? They already have one star striker: former Valencia forward Paco Alcacer.
